Q: capacitive touch is not touch screen readout for TFT ?
A: It is possible to enable and operate capacitive touch on a TFT LCD depending on the nature of the physical touch construction. For instance, if you have ITO as discrete locations on the screen, it is possible to decern which location is being touched. This would not necessarily include a multi-touch experience unless the designer wants to extend the capabilities beyond today's firmware release. Most TFT, ITO screens we see already come with an attached device to handle capacitive touch down to the pixel level.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
